NOV Mono Expands Its European Operations
Following its recent acquisition of the Robbins and Myers business, NOV Mono has announced plans to increase its penetration of the European market.
“Europe offers enormous potential for the various products in our newly extended portfolio, and we are expanding our teams and our capabilities so that we can exploit that potential to the full,” says European Sales Manager, Ian Horton.
Ian cites Germany as a good example of this programme in action. “We have already expanded our presence in Germany with the aim of increasing the level of service we provide to our customers there. This includes appointing new Area Sales Managers, and signing new commercial agreements with independent distributors such as Walter Fiedler and Würdig Pumpentechnik, who now represent us in separate areas of the German water and wastewater market. However we are not finished yet. We’re currently recruiting to expand our sales force, in Germany and other territories, with a view to providing our customers with even better support.”
Mono has also been developing its offering to European customers in other ways, including changes to the supply chain for its range of Mono Universal Parts in France. This move has further improved turnaround times and helped to reduce equipment downtime and customer spares inventories. Mono customers in the French water and waste water industries now also benefit from the supply of the company’s EZstripTM products via the NOV Mono France office. “The range includes the EZstrip Transfer Pump, EZstrip Cake Pump and the EZstrip TR Muncher,” adds Ian. “Our aim is to make it even easier for our French customers to access the wealth of expertise and industry experience that lies behind both the EZstrip range and the Mono business as a whole.”
On a wider scale, Mono’s new global structure offers an increased range of products and services to its European customers. These include progressing cavity pumps, grinders, screens, mixers and a variety of other associated technologies designed to meet the needs of the world’s process industries. “We now offer our customers the benefits of a team which can support them no matter where they are in Europe, or what their requirements are, “ adds Ian. “We are a truly global business and can provide the highest quality products, technology, services and solutions that our customers can rely on, and while we’ve made an excellent start on delivering that new offering there is much work to be done in the future.”
